    1. Hi Vivienne! Yes, you can certainly use a slow cooker for this recipe. It would be a different experience from cooking in the Instant Pot but the taste results of the slow cooker will be as delightful as the Instant pot.

  1. Thanks for the delicious looking recipe! My Instant Pot is still in the box, so I’m trying to learn to operate it. I’m still not aware of proper functioning, but I think if it is okay to first sauté the steaks, then add gravy and begin from there?

  2. Your recipe looks awesome! It is so amazing that you can cook a meal like this in just 20 minutes in an instant pot, that’s why, I have made up my mind to buy an instant pot. I want to buy an 8 quart instant pot. Will your recipe work in it?

    1. Yes, this recipe will definitely work in an 8-quart Instant Pot. Add a little bit more water or stock though to reach the pressure easily. Hope that helps a little!
